Just passing through and needed a sit down experience. White tablecloths, quiet elegant ambience for fast attentive service. I almost always get a pad thai when I go into a thai restaurant - not very adventuresome. It was a little vineagary for me, but I enjoyed the quiet ambience and Thai iced tea.

I think this restaurant is fine. I usually order the asparagus black mushroom or a noodle dish. My husband runs a little cold however. Freshly prepared, all entrees come with your choice of a little bowl of soup. Service is friendly, interior is pleasant.

Lovely atmosphere right across the street from the river. The portions were quite generous...I had a tofu dish and the only complaint I had is the oil they used to cook it in. It was not peanut oil or any flavored oil, it just tasted like a cheap cooking oil. However, my two companions said their meals were delicious. The... More

Enjoyed the meal - the decor is nice and atmosphere nice for a quiet dinner for a couple. Food was delicious - my dish - drunken noodles with chicken was favorable without being overly spicy (I enjoy spicy) - and the chicken was tender. I would go again to try a few more.

Owner is always present and attentive. Very willing to alter the preparation of your food to suit your needs. Authentic? YES! Great atmosphere in historic Muscatine hotel.

I don't think anyone who works here is from Thai descent. This used to be outstanding but then it was bought by someone else. Now they don't even serve peanut Thai sauce and they didn't even know what I was talking about.
